What is the Givi app and what is it used for?


The Givi app is a mobile donation app that makes it easy to check in, receive notifications, and donate to Children Rising at our Hope for Children Now Gala from your phone! By downloading Givi and setting it up your payment method ahead of the event, you now have a secure and convenient way to participate in the night’s activities, including our Fund-A-Need Paddle Raise. 

On the Givi app, you will be able to see all your donations and purchases in one place. At the end of the night, just check out on the app and—voilà!—you’re done! Need some help with it? Find us at the Checkout Table near the venue exit and we’ll sort you out.
